the lie we believe

Once I achieve this goal, I’ll feel better about myself.

Sound familiar? Yeah. I can relate.

At best, this “feeling better about myself” lasts less than 24 hours.

No matter how big the achievement, I always find myself back to obsessing over my shortcomings.

The world is packed with overachievers competing for – and winning – accomplishments.

Perhaps, instead of obsessing over our next big achievement, we should shift our focus towards the needs of others.

“The really wonderful moments of joy in this world are not the moments of self-satisfaction, but self-forgetfulness.” – John Piper
